Too fragile

The amazon guy, Adorama
25 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The locks of the legs tilt are very fragile. I already have two of them broken, as visible in the image below. It is also too short determining that opens the central column, less stable.I sent an email to the manufacturer requesting action but not getting any response yet.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Fragile, Weak Construction

A very nice, sturdy, light tripod.

rstanley, Adorama
7 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Supposedly there are only two kinds of tripods, lightweight, easy to carry ones and good tripods. This tripod is in the latter category, because even though it is carbon fiber, it is a pretty large tripod, and therefore a bit cumbersome. I have a collection of tripods, accumulated over the years, as I began to see the importance of using one. This is by far my favorite.
  • Pros: Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly

Best Value for CF Tripod

newoldthing, opticsplanet.com
20 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this tripod to replace my 3 years old aluminum Manfrotto 190XPROB which has configurable center column orientation (either vertical or horizontal) which is pretty handy for macro photography. The biggest complain I had with this tripod was the weight, load capacity, no solid counter-weight features, and is pretty cold to handle in winter time.
  • Pros: Lightweight, cost effective, multi angle center column, low angle photography, comes with bag and stone bag
  • Cons: None

Almost perfect tripod

Dr. Magic, Adorama
24 June 2009
  • Excerpt: I'll start with my only complaint. The tripod is a bit large when closed. I know at some point I'll get a travel tripod but right now I've carried it along with a camera, and 3 lens for almost a whole day of walking in NYC. Taking it cross country on an airplane, we'll see.After that it's all good. I am 6'2" and this is more than tall enough for me. The key feature is adaptability.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Good Stability, Includes carrying case, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Not compact

Ordentlich verarbeitetes Stativ mit leichten Schwächen

Clarace, Amazon
26 August 2014
  • Summary: Die Schwächen sind aus meiner Sicht: - bei umgelegter Mittelsäule hat diese nur eine eingeschränkte Bewegungsfreiheit nach oben, da sie schnell mit dem unteren Ende an die Beine stösst - das Gelenk der umgelegten Mittelsäule hat Spiel, was das genaue Positionieren bei Makroaufnahmen erschwert - die Schalter zum stufenweisen Abspreizen der Beine sind "mittelpraktisch" konstruiert Ansonsten halte ich das Stativ für empfehlenswert.
